Ehime

What is Ehime?

Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country’s oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.

Getting Around

If you’re heading straight from Tokyo to Ehime, flying is certainly the quickest option, with a flight from Tokyo to Matsuyama Airport taking just over an hour. For those with a little more time and a few more stops on their itinerary, the JR Yosan Line will take you directly from the shinkansen stop Okayama Station to Matsuyama Station via Kagawa prefecture. However, the most recommended route is, of course, via the scenic Shimano Kaido, a popular route to cycle from Onomichi to Imabari.
